Haywood Smith started writing historical novels at forty, completing six award-winning, critically acclaimed accurate historicals.  But after finding out her husband of thirty years was engaged to a stripper and had run up huge debts, Haywood switched to writing humorous Southern Women's Fiction books about serious women's issues, and made the New York Times Best Seller List.  (She sent her ex a thank-you note.)  Drawing on the challenges of her life, she completed 8 of these beloved novels.  Queen Bee Goes Home Again  comes out September 16, 2014.  She has spoken all over America and internationally.
